Under the Hood

Sometimes after I read a book I look at the picture of the author on the cover and think, "yeah, that's exactly what I thought they'd look like." Other times, the picture is nothing like the mental picture I'd developed.

Funny how the simple choice and construction of words on a page (or screen) can give you a subconscious picture of what someone may or may not look like.

Here's a little fun for y'all.

I'm coming unveiled. Sort of.

Let's have a vote. All of these people have the same first name. Which one is me?

1.

2.

3.

4.

5.

Damn, this is hard, woman. I vote for #3 though, but feel like I'm wrong. I just can't commit. Now I must know!

Dang, I can't play this one! I'm certainly disqualified.

I'm interested to see the choices others make.

SzélsőFa said...

Hee, I'd vote for #3, too!
But I suspect more than one picture is also you.
Or, there are at least two photos picturing the same woman in different age.

I'm also sracthing my scalp to find out the truth - but the higher the number of guessess, the better the game!

SzélsőFa said...

or, perhaps # is your Mum, # 2 is you at age 15, #3 is you now.
The more I look at the photos the more resemblence I see...
Execpt for #5, but heavy mascara can be distracting.

Hoodie said...

Only one picture is me.

Oh, yeah, I forgot, Jason, that you have an advantage here. Jaye might as well. Thanks for bowing out.

Jaye Wells said...

I won't vote because I know too. Great shot of you btw.

Vesper said...

Very interesting!...

I'll vote for No. 4.

Looking forward to finding out the correct answer...
:-)

strugglingwriter said...

OK, I'll be different. I'll go with #5.

Cool idea for a post, by the way.

Scott said...

I'm guessing five as well. And the idea is cool!

I'm going with #4, though they are all beautiful gals. I guess I always pictured you with brown hair... never really thought of it, though! Weird, huh?

I am LOVING this game. Just loving it! And if it turns out you're number 5, you MUST tell us how to get such gorgeous skin. :)

Hoodie said...

This is all very interesting. Knowing myself as well as I do I couldn't help but think the answer would be obvious.

We shall see. Let the voting continue.

Michelle said...

I'll vote number one, since it doesn't look like anyone else is voting for that one. although, it probably isn't, because I find most people don't put the correct answer as the first choice. How fun is this?!?!

Aine said...

I'll vote for #4.

Hey, how do Jason and Jaye already know? I feel like I'm missing something here... ;)

Vesper said...

OK, so how much longer will we be waiting?... :-) :-) :-)

Hoodie said...

Aine - Jason and Jaye knew my true identity before I split off my real life blog and put on the hood.

Vesper - Oh, you thought I was going to tell the real answer? ;)

Today or tomorrow.

Hoodie:

Yeah, sure... you and Jason and Jaye were involved in the "Heaven's Gate" cult together, weren't you? Admit it...
